Allright guys.

Its about time we get some more activity going on around The Elite again, and I have a great idea! I've always been looking for ways to get speedrunning of GE and PD, maybe some of you remember I had an idea around a year ago about live streaming of people playing and linking it to websites/our forum/our homepage etc. NOW is the time to make that happen!

There are dozens of websites for live streaming already, everyone knows etc. But lately a huge community is rising for speedrunning games live on twitch.tv. Many of our chatters are already watching channels of people who speedrun games like Mario 64, and those players are mostly linked to speedrunslive.com where people can see which people are speedrunning what games at that moment.

My idea is that we get involved into this asap and make a channel for The Elite on twitch. We could link it to speedrunslive and give the password to people of our community. We could make a twitch channel that gives an overview to world records, link to our homepage etc. We could link the stream to our homepage so whenever someone is streaming live you could insta see it on the-elite.net (maybe even on our forum as well?).

im 100% sure there is a lot of interest for people to watch GE and PD speedruns live and this could seriously help (top) players to get some motivation. We could even get a donation system going for the-elite on this channel and raise some money for the Elite. Also we could even broadcast ads now and then on the channel to raise some money.

good example of a twitch channel: http://www.twitch.tv/siglemic
guy speedrunning mario 64. Includes donation system, troll chat for people watching (!!!), FAQ, etc.

anyway, give your support in this topic if you think this a good idea! would love to watch people speedrun stuff. particularly full A/SA/00A speedruns would be AMAZING to watch live and comment on.

I've already tried streaming a bit just on emulator and it is very simple to set up. So here are some quick directions for getting started.

What you will need:
- A twitch account (http://www.twitch.tv/)
- A broadcasting program. The best one available is Xsplit (http://www.xsplit.com/), but there are others as well. Xsplit is currently in open beta and is free to use. You just need to register a free account on their site.
- A video capture device. Basically any capture card or camera that you already may use to record your vids will work fine. If you are playing a PC or emulator game, you don't even need a capture device, but everyone here plays on console.
- A decent computer. Don't be scared when I say "decent". You don't need a powerful modern gaming computer to do this. I am able to easily stream with my first generation i5 laptop with NO discrete graphics card. Your computer just needs to be able to handle the broadcasting program (Xsplit uses 10-20% cpu on my comp) and whatever program you normally use to capture your vids if you capture directly to your computer (If you record with a VCR/DVD recorder and capture later, then you don't even need to worry about that part of it).
- A/V splitter. This is so you can have the output from your console go to your TV and your capture card at the same time. You can find these dirt cheap on amazon.

How to set up your stream:
1. Make your twitch account. You also may want to adjust the various settings for your twitch account such as your broadcast title, bio, and chat settings. However, probably the most important thing to do here is indicate what game you are playing (i.e. "Goldeneye 007") so that users can find you when you are broadcasting. You can set this up in your twitch dashboard.
2. Register, download, and install Xsplit.
3. Run and set up Xsplit. This includes linking your twitch account to Xsplit and adjusting your stream settings. There is a very detailed guide on how to do this here: http://gamercide.org/posts/a-guide-to-broadcasting-with-xsplit/
4. Broadcast your stream. Once you have Xsplit set up, you do this by literally clicking one button.

That's pretty much it! Once you have all of your hardware and software initially set up, all you have to do to stream is open Xsplit and click one button. This should make it quite easy for you to stream any time you play.

I would suggest that everyone make their own individual channel, but I do also like the idea of having a community channel that we can share and embed on the-elite front page. Hopefully we can also use such a channel to broadcast tournament matches from VA and other meets! But like Cara said, we need players to get on board for any of this to happen!

definitely in if I ever speedrun kart again.  (edit as for GE would only be statue/streets for obvious reasons in that I suck  but there's a fair chance someday I'll redo statue considering how much those times suck compared to what I can get)

I would also like to add that this doesn't have to be limited to the single-level runs that we're all used to doing. One of the coolest aspects of streaming is that it lets you interact with other players so that things like real-time races are possible. For example, the Ocarina of Time speed runners have special races every week that regularly draw 30+ participants. In our case, we could do something like a weekly/monthly GE Agent race (or whatever kind of race people want to do) and multiple streams could be shown side-by-side on the elite's channel. Better yet, all the people in the race could be in Skype so you could hear commentary from everyone. I think having races and other non-segmented solo run stuff would get more people involved and make things more fun.

Splitters aren't dirt cheap...fortunately I already have one! What's an example of a video capture device? I've only ever used a DVD recorder, and the capture card thing is the only thing that's keeping me from doing this.

I suck at GE/PD, but I'm still decent at a few levels, and I might stream other stuff.

You probably have a distribution amplifier, which actually uses power to amplify the A/V input so you can have multiple (usually 4 or more) outputs without degrading the signal. From what I have read, if you're just splitting the signal from one input to two outputs, a simple splitter like this will be fine: http://www.amazon.com/HDE-Audio-Video-Splitter-Adapter/dp/B0021O9KCM/ref=pd_ybh_1

These cost about $1 each and you would just need three of them to split each of the composite (yellow/white/red) signals. I haven't tried these myself, but if the reviews are any indication, they should work ok without significant signal degradation.

As for capture devices, if you're using a laptop you'll want a USB capture device. The Dazzle DVC 100 is good for streaming and it's very cheap.

The main thing to worry about when buying one of these is making sure the device you buy works with your operating system. For example, I have a USB capture device that I used to capture all my PD vids a long time ago, but now I have a Windows 7 laptop and this old device doesn't work with it. Actually, I'd be happy to give this one to anyone out there who is still using Windows XP, since it works fine with that OS.

You can also do things the old fashioned way and just point a webcam at your television, but the quality will obviously be shit  :P

Sorry for the lack of updates, but my internet at home has been down all week.

I just noticed that the account name "theelite" is already taken on twitch (did any of us make this one?) so we need a good account name for our channel. Some options are:

theelitetv
theelitenet
theelitelive
GEPDelite

Feel free to offer suggestions!

The channel is born!

http://www.twitch.tv/theelitegaming

the stream is up! already tried out the setup and everything seems to work fine now.

The stream will be implemented on the homepage the-elite.net soon, but dont forget to make yourself a twitch account as well so you can chat on the page. No need for email activation or anything.

PM Thingy, DK or me if you want to stream on our channel.

we'll be streaming more games besides GE and PD ofcourse, so keep an eye on the channel if you want to see Eliters broadcast live gaming!

Here's just a little reminder that our channel www.twitch.tv/theelitegaming is up and ready for people to use. Like Cara said, just get in touch with him, me, or Thingy if you want to start streaming.

Earlier today we had Red Bull and Cara do Agent runs of PD, and we hope to see more people get involved!

There is a brand new OoT glitch, like only 3 days old. It is a warp from the Deku Tree Endboss to the death of Ganondorf using some very crazy combination of a bottle, bugs and the blue warp thing. Ganon is finished as a child! :D

The new WR is 22:43 and will go lower the next days:
http://www.twitch.tv/zfg1/b/315135377

In this thread to show twitch possibilities.


FAQ:

Quote
Q: Why is this on the Japanese version?
A: The text is much faster. Other than that, it's the exact same as any other version.

Q: Is this legit?
A: Yes, everything I do here can be done on any regular console with no cheats or modifications at all.

Q: Why do you need the bottle?
A: To activate the ocarina items glitch on the edge of the blue warp which allowed me to move during the cutscene so I could get to the door.

Q: How does that warp glitch work?
A: The game is trying to load the value for the kokiri emerald cutscene and the main deku tree area at the same time, so it sends you to a new room value which happens to be a room in the escape.

Q: How did you die to gohma? Was it on purpose?
A: I got hit at the same time I killed her which also killed me. It was on purpose, I needed to return to the room with the stone wall blocking the door gone.

Q: What's up with the deku sticks?
A: They are actually as powerful as the master sword, so they're a great weapon for this.

Q: How did you figure this out? Was it on accident?
A: First of all, I did not find this, it was found by r0bd0g and sockfolder.

It was found by examining older glitches and trying to do it with a different method. The warp itself was possible with farore's wind on B as adult, but took too long to do that so no one really cared. Then the idea of using the door instead of farore's wind was proposed, it was tested, and it worked.

HOLD THIS for Cara:

(20:38:04) Ngameratwork: Cara, what we need is an indicator on the top of the boards and the front page of t-e.n whenever Elite Streaming goes live
(20:39:20) Ngameratwork: like a red message that says "Elite now streaming LIVE! Thingy is playing Batman", and clicking it takes you right there
(20:43:02) carathornpd: yes great idea
(20:43:06) wheatrich: I'd leave out the thingy is playing
(20:43:10) wheatrich: and batman parts
(20:43:19) carathornpd: well its optional
(20:43:30) carathornpd: but the LIVE sign would be first priority
(20:43:52) Ngameratwork: just having it there is the main thing, yes.  but I think it would get even MORE traffic if people also knew it was Clemens playing GE

I was wondering if there are any people busy getting together equipment for streaming. I have been streaming a bit over the last days, I can say its really encouraging when there are 10 people watching and supporting you!

Cant wait to show support when other people start streaming. Anyone with a capture card and interest to stream, please message me or DK on AIM (or send a PM on the forum) if you need any help setting it up. Its really simple guys, just do it!

I have great ideas about races, where you give multiple people who stream at the same time a time slot of lets say... 1 hour, and within the hour you try to gather as many ranking points as possible. Would be great, can be done on GE and PD.

I would just like to note a few things for people who want to get started...

Earlier this month Xsplit went out of beta, so you now have to buy a license to use the full version. However, you can still use the free version with some limitations. The most glaring limitation of the free version is that you can only stream at a max of 25 fps.

If you don't want to deal with Xsplit, there is other broadcasting software available. The most popular alternative is Flash Media Encoder (http://www.adobe.com/products/flash-media-encoder.html) which works for PC and Mac (so "I have a mac" isn't a good excuse for not streaming :P). Setting up streaming using FME is a bit different and there is a good tutorial here:
www.justin.tv/p/fme

Basically you just need to go to your twitch account dashboard and click on "Streaming Apps" in the upper right corner. Click on the "Config" button under FME to download an XML file. This is the file that you will load in FME to begin streaming.

As for me, I have been streaming, but it hasn't been elite-related stuff since I don't have my N64 with me right now. Hopefully I'll get my N64 back in a few weeks so I can start streaming PD.

I'll stream for a little bit again, maybe only 45 minutes if anyone wants to watch.

still need more of the-elite in on this.  It's so much different seeing WR vids and PR's vs seeing them in real time.

I can't get this to work with any consistency with my setup though so I'm basically at the f'it point.

I just watched some of Bauer's streaming and honestly I don't see how this is different than watching other vids.  What is the allure here?

What's the allure of watching sports when you can just get the highlights later?  Yeah, it's a time waster but why the heck not?  Rooting people on and lol'ing at ridicness in side chat is decent too.

If you have a decent crowd of personalities when a stream is going on then it's good fun; you get a lot of banter between people. Also it's interesting to watch the process as well.

I hope to do some tomorrow so watch out for some WRs (or not).

Yeah i enjoy watching people stream runs, its cool to see how consistent a player is and stuff and its just fun and gives you something to do when your bored.  I think it would be really cool if more people start doing this especially if they could stream with good quality.

I should be able to stream soon with my new hdd recorder coming in, will be able to have a line out going to my laptop. So by then I should be pretty good too :)

ETA about like 1-2 weeks and I'll be up and running.

I'm making a comeback and will be playing at least an hour most days. Some sessions will be a few hours.

Come to VA one year.  Dave Clemens is consistent.  It's unreal watching him.  <_<
